Bermuda is one of the North Atlantic’s best-kept secrets, and it makes an incredible – and convenient! – charter holiday destination. Located just a short distance from the United State’s Eastern coast, Bermuda offers an incredible range of sights and activities which can be enjoyed aboard a luxury vessel such as the successful and elegant 46m Benetti superyacht LADY S. Explore sunken shipwrecks and sea life with a private scuba instructor, relax on the pink-sand beaches, or enjoy the shopping and restaurants of the capital city, Hamilton. The possibilities are endless! Check out our example 5-day charter itinerary:
On the first day of the charter, guests will arrive in the morning, and be welcomed on board LADY S by her enthusiastic and friendly crew. The crew will show guests their new home for the next 5 days, and help them to get settled in. After the safety briefing, a delicious lunch will be prepared by the skilled chef, using fresh ingredients from the local region. The afternoon is spent relaxing on board and getting familiar with the yacht and all its excellent amenities. At 5 pm, guests can enjoy a cocktail hour, where bar staff will wow you with their mixology skills. After, settle in for a wonderful dinner on board.
Day 2 is when the action starts, with a day dedicated to diving and exploring! After departing the marina and anchoring at beautiful Somerset Island, guests will wake up to the fabulous breakfast bar packed with delicious options, along with an à la carte menu to choose from. After breakfast, the 32ft Jupiter tender will be ready to depart for the day’s excursion, with a cooler stocked with snacks and refreshments. After stopping at a picturesque beach at Ely’s Harbour to acquaint novice divers with their gear, the tender will head through scenic Sandy’s Parish to Vixen Wreck. Here there is a sunken shipwreck for divers to explore and observe the incredible sea life. For those who prefer to snorkel on the surface, nearby Daniels Island and Long Bay boast breathtaking turquoise blue waters and an abundance of fish and sea life to admire.
Enjoy a scenic ride through Mangrove Bay and Great Sound back to LADY S, where a delicious lunch will be waiting. In the afternoon, relax on the sundeck, take a dip in the jacuzzi, or hop on the jet skis for some fun! Later on, enjoy happy hour as you cruise back to dock, then top the day off with dinner on board.
The adventure continues on Day 3, with numerous wrecks to dive and explore. In the morning while guests enjoy breakfast, LADY S will make a scenic cruise up to Eastern Blue Cut, where she will anchor nearby. There are several breaks or “cuts” in the reef around Bermuda, with the Eastern Blue Cut being one of the largest. The flow of sea life through this area make it one of the most spectacular snorkelling sites in the world. The area is home to several wrecks to dive, as well as the famous ‘blue hole’ of Bermuda!
As lunch is served on board, the crew will refill the dive tanks, so that guests who wish to do so can continue diving and exploring in the afternoon. For those who wish to soak up some sun, simply relax on board with a good book or a good drink (or both!). Later, LADY S will make her way back to port while guests enjoy happy hour and dinner on board, with the setting sun creating an incredible backdrop.
On Day 4, guests have a range of choices to enjoy. A dive instructor is on hand to accompany guests on a private scuba tour, or if you would prefer dry land, there is the option to be dropped by tender on the private docks at Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton. Here guests can explore all the offerings of the quaint city, such as shopping and local restaurants. LADY S will meet guests back at Tucker’s Point or at Hamilton Princess Marina for the final night of the trip.
Enjoy a final delicious breakfast on board at the dock prior to disembarkation. Guests will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed, and with incredible memories to be enjoyed for a lifetime!
